you think that president obama is going to want to take ownership on iran at this stage? maybe this is for jim dobbins -- you talk about engaging on syria . did ministration has said it is not want to talk to iran about syria at all. you talk about a bilateral channel, naming chief negotiator. iran has refused to have a two- minute bilateral with wendy sherman at the p-5 plus one. >> obama ownership, the question is, do you want another war in the middle east. it is very clear that nobody does. president obama has made that clear. jim is right that whatever happens in syria, there will be an iranian quotient to how to deal with that. by laterals, it would not think the you need to appoint a new negotiator. negotiations can proceed in the context of the p5 plus one. some months ago we started out with just a few bilaterals. i think it was china and maybe germany. now britain and france have been added. maybe there will come that magic day when mr. julie leung wendy sherman will do more than ask each other for talks -- he and wendy sherman will do more than ask each other for tal

this activity. >> the obama ministration maintains any strike would be limited, not an open-ended invasion. it strikes go ahead, parallels with the previous presidency will become more tempting. >> it will be a real irony if president obama looks a little like george bush by engaging in a limited military strike in syria. therefore drawing united states deeper into another middle east conflict. >> irony, indeed. the white house indicated it may not wait for the united nations weapons inspectors to return from syria to present findings, emphasizing they will not be swayed by the u.n.. with other allies now saying they will not join any strike, and the united nations security council said to me in a few days -- set to meet in a few days, if washington goes soon it could find itself acting alone. >> the briefing just broke up. has the white house got the backing he needs here at home, if not abroad? like that is a question that will be answered in the coming hours. what we do know is smooth the evidence they presented, they actually said that bashar al- assad's brother may have been involved
